Martina Devlin: Wallace more suited to being in episode of 'The Sopranos' than a member of the Dail

I WONDER if Mick Wallace thinks he's living inside an episode of 'The Sopranos'. Perhaps in his imagination he's 'The Dude' Wallace -- an unconventional character who thumbs his nose at the status quo and likes to do things his way.
Even when his way means blurring the lines between what's right and wrong, proper and improper, shady and squeaky clean. And if he's caught, he probably reckons he can give a wink, toss those peroxide waves, and get away with it. As, to date, he has.
Except in the world of 'The Sopranos' the law of omerta generally keeps grubby little secrets tucked away, out of sight. Whereas in Wallace-land, he blabs about his exploits himself.
